About
The Frick Collection is your home for art from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. Founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919), the museum offers visitors intimate encounters with one of the world’s foremost collections of European fine and decorative arts. The Frick—now in its temporary location at Frick Madison, at the Breuer-designed building at 945 Madison Avenue, while its historic buildings undergo renovation—features celebrated works by Rembrandt, Fragonard, Ingres, Bellini, Vermeer, and more. The Frick Art Reference Library, a leading art historical research center, was established one hundred years ago by Helen Clay Frick and provides access to its rich collections for scholars and the public alike.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.

I visited Frick Madison in December 2021. I bought my ticket online. Upon entry I had to show my proof of vaccination and ID. I had been to the Frick Collection a few years ago at its old location. I think at this location, the paintings and artworks are very well organized and therefore easier to follow. I started on the second floor with paintings by Dutch masters - Vermeer, Van Dyke and Rembrandt. Next was the third floor. Spanish artists - Goya, Velasquez and El Greco, Italian artists - Veronese, Titian and others and sculptures, clocks and porcelain. Finally, the fourth floor. One painting each by Monet, Renoir, Degas, Manet. And British paintings. There were two large paintings by Turner - one of the harbor at Dieppe in France and another of Cologne. There was a British painting of General Burgoyne who lost the Battle of Saratoga during the American Revolutionary War. There were paintings by Whistler and several paintings by Fragonard. I was able to do the visit in about one hour. If you get an audio guide it will take longer. Again, I think this is a fantastic collection and I enjoyed my visit.

This exquisite collection is temporarily housed in the Frick Madison. Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919) was an immensely wealthy industrialist who left his vast art collection to the public. The collection, scarcely matched elsewhere, is strong in Old Masters and Rennaisance paintings. No trip to New Yotrk City is complete without a visit to the Frick.

What a treat to visit the Frick Madison in the former Met Breuer building!! We had visited the Frick Collection in its home location on a previous visit to New York. This time, after months of watching the Frick curators share the collection via weekly virtual programs, We had to return to see the paintings and sculptures and other works up close and personal in this new setting. It was truly a privilege to see once again the Fragonards, the Bouchers, Ingres's 'Comtesse d'Haussonville', Turner's Harbor of Dieppe', Constable's 'White Horse', Bellini's 'St. Francis in the Desert', the Whistlers, the Impressionists, and so many other familiar works! The only disappointment was not being able to take photographs within the galleries, not even for the architecture of the rooms (the ceiling is so unique and interesting). During these COVID times, timed tickets bought in advance are required, and at the entrance, vaccination card and photo ID have to be shown, with masks required throughout your visit, except in the cafe garden.

Having visited the Frick Collection exhibits many times in tha past, the Frick Madison was a very pleasant experience.
Instead of viewing small parts of the collection in the relatively small display area of the mansion, the ex-Whitney venue does great credit to these divine works of art.
While the old mansion is getting a face lift, we have an unparalleled opportunity to view what is probably one of the finest private art collections in the world in wide open spaces, enabling to sit back and absorb these amazing masterpieces.
The world's greatest painters are on show, including Rembrandt, Manet, Monet, Degas, plus many more.
In addition to the paintings, there are clocks, enamel works, sculptures and many more parts of the collection.
We spent a good three hours and enjoyed it thoroughly.
This is a not-to-be-missed chance for art lovers to be up close to some of the greatest art creations in the world.
Be sure to book your timed tickets in advance!!
Incredible Collection!! Amazing Museum!!

I've been going to the Frick on a regular basis for 40 years, but seeing the paintings displayed in the Breuer space is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For the first time, you can approach the Bellini!

Arguably, the Frick is the best collection in the world / size and quality- three Vermeers out of 36! And three of the very best. The Holbein! The Turners! The Ingres! The Goya and Velasquez!. . .

This should be at the top of the list of any visitor to NYC and every NYorker!

The visit is extermely well organized and not too crowded. Be sure to get your tickets in advance.

The Frick Madison is an airy, spacious venue for the spectacular art in the collection. Gone is the stuffy, claustrophobic atmosphere of the mansion. The staff members, unlike my first visit in 2013, were pleasant, engaging, and welcoming. The galleries were cleanly defined, with ample spaces to sit and absorb the beauty. I do wish digital photography was permitted, but, oh well. Highly recommended!

Visted the Frick Madison last weekend. Wonderful temporary home of the Frick’s vast and stunning collection of art. Unfortunately the visit was slightly tarnished by a couple of very rude museum aides, but that didn’t completely detract from the experience.

I went to the Frick for my birthday with some friends and had a wonderful time. The collection is very impressive with a range of artwork, and a free audio guide that gave an explanation about most of the pieces. I highly recommend the Frick Collection to anyone with a few hours to spare!

The Frick collection is currently housed in the former Met Breuer building as Frick Madison. It’s strange at first to see these renowned early works hanging on bare walls with no furniture or objects around them. But it makes you appreciate the art in a new way. I especially enjoyed seeing the huge Fragonard series, on the progress of love on these gray walls, and I loved the two tiered displays of ceramic pots and vases, one of blue and white pieces and the other of some in shades of magenta.
With Covid precautions in place, you must reserve ahead of time and are subject to having your temperature taken and wearing a mask.
Well worth a visit!
